The 'Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA)' discussed the absence of YG Entertainment's artists from the awards show this year. 

During a recent press conference for '2016 MAMA,' Kang Hee Jung, head of Mnet, talked about YG not attending the show, saying, "Artists usually are considerate of 'MAMA's schedule and date, and during that, we announce the candidates and attendees as we get ready." 

He added, "We do not discuss awards while we talk about who will attend. We try our best to have a fair and great show."

He also explained, "In regards to YG Entertainment, we expressed our desire for them to attend, and then heard that they could not come because of schedules abroad. We were sad to hear the news...we respect YG's decision." 

This year's 'MAMA' will take place in Hong Kong on December 2!

Seriously i am glad, because that means no unnesecary IKON performence of 2+ Songs or 2ne1 withouth even releasing anything this year (i know they disbanded officially but could be cl solo perfomance for no reason whatsoever, you catch my drift..) lol

YG is an asshole #fuckYG. We can never forgive him for what he did to BOM, Minzy and 2ne1. I will boycott all YG products

i really hope other not so well-known groups get to go. i wanna see more groups from other companies besides the TOP 3 cause we don't need YG to enjoy an awards show. its silly and egotistical to judge a show's success just because one group(s) isn't there.

haha Mnet always clapping back at YG.

The hell are you talking about? They are respecting the artists' decision not to attend this year's show because they got comebacks slated for next month.

I think everyone who watched MAMA every year do know that only the winner attended and performed. And since MAMA is held on another country, the attendance getting fewer. The show manage to be held for hours because of some group/person performed for 10 minutes or more, having special stages with the person who just performed or will perform with his/her own group. We saw the same person on stage, again. I wish more artists would perform even though they didn't win.

If those who didn't win will attend that would be a waste of money don't you think?

soohyunLeeLove watchlisten Saturday, November 26, 2016

Agree.. I watch it like every year, but yeah, I 1000% agree with this..

"schedules abroad" That's like canceling a hang-out with your friends because you're "busy"

I believe YG is not the only company in kpop. Why are people here talking as though other artists can never put on a good show? How selfish and inconsiderate of YG stans to think that its not a good mama awards show without YG. As expected.....even YG stans are as cocky and holier than thou as YG himself. The ego and stupid pride runs in the family indeed. YG thinks so high of himself and his artists are too godly to be on variety shows....therefore even YG stans are just as egotistic and proud as YG to think that only YG makes the mamas worth watching. Pride comes before a fall, never look down on other agencies because you never know who will be on the top next time.

purplematoki twinklefairy Saturday, November 26, 2016

I absolutely 100% agree

Will it make you feel better if we said MAMA this year is gonna be rocked, when in all truth and reality IT WONT, not that they other groups aren't good enough it's because they are too busy synchronizing their hard choreographies while trying to maintain a live vocal which is distracting enough to connect with the audience and hype the stage the way YG groups do it, YG puts less effort on dancing so his artists can put up a good performance vocally and in terms of stage manners. You got me? Right now only Mamamoo does that. The others just do what they usually do when they perform on music shows and on their music videos it's almost robotic, same hand gestures facial expressions, they are not free and flexible, I doubt they even have the freedom to improvise a bit or to add adlibs which makes the overall performance a little too dull. If saying all of this makes me sound cocky well then fine but u know full well it's the truth

Well they do have the highest views for their performances i think gdyb goodboy is they highest viewed mama video ever!!

davidcs Saturday, November 26, 2016

I dont know but i feel right to write some hatefull comment about YG or BP. Clearly bcs 2ne1. Still hurt.

INtheSPIRIT davidcs Saturday, November 26, 2016

?? You feel right to write a hateful comment? That's disgusting

davidcs INtheSPIRIT Saturday, November 26, 2016

So what??? and who are you????? Are you the greatest fans from 2009??? are you the best fans ever?? hah bitch!!! u never know how hard to love this girls for 7 years!

davidcs INtheSPIRIT Saturday, November 26, 2016

And u just 19 bitch who fuck the all the boy in closet. Poor u infinite, has bitch as ur fans

El_Bartolina davidcs Saturday, November 26, 2016

Just because you are sad that 2ne1 disbanded, that gives you absolutly no right to write hatefull comments to groups or people

INtheSPIRIT davidcs Sunday, November 27, 2016

lol first I'm not 19, second I'm not an infinite fan I just like their fandom name, 3 you didn't know I was blackjack. 4 I'm sad that the girls have fans like u yelling at other people with vulgar language in terrible English. 5 I may not be the greatest but I always try to defend what's right and go against hate, racism and ignorance. Plus, you talked about hating black pink and yg. YG is a stretch, but black pink did nothing for 2ne1s disbandment. You should grow up. Stop pretending you're the only one shocked and sad 2ne1 disbanded
